HP Buys Palm: How It Changes Everything

"Rejoice: HP is buying Palm! If the boring beigeness of HP doesn't kill it in the process, this could only be good for anyone looking for a neat solid smartphone that beats Google and Apple in many areas."

The story is too old to be commented.

Good steal for any Corporation really. HP knows how to design their products; at least that's how I ended up w/ a laptop o.o This is definitely a great move on their part. More competition the better for all of us.

No they don't, HP is a cheap ass company that puts in typical nice parts where people know what to look for, like amount of RAM and processor. But the motherboard, harddrives, dvdroms etc are the lowest and cheapest quality out there, and even if it has lots of RAM, it's still cheap no-brand RAM from China.

I will never buy an HP product ever. Where I work we recieve faulty HP laptops more than any other brand.

I definitely agree on you there. The HP laptop i own literally died on me after about 2 years of use, I recently just got it fixed. What I meant however is their sleek design. We all know HP as far as quality sucks hardcore. They don't have any type of longevity whatsoever. At least with Palm's tech, we might finally see a good product overall. Although I'm still reluctant to really get anything that has an HP brand on it because of my own laptop experience.

My mistake for not fully explaining my reasoning /bow.

i doubt it will change everything.. palm is a brand still living on past glories doubt hp can restore it to its form ways..

Bubbles to you 12O5OT12O17 for coming back and explaining:)

Hp should have saved themselves a billion dollars and let Palm fail by themselves rather than paying through the nose for the privilege of helping them die. HP's a solid technology company but far from visionary enough to make up the kind of ground Apple and Android are taking. Heck, it's looking like MS isn't even going to be able to do it in spite of WinMo7 completing and a many years long head start.

Use to work at Best buy and was shown stat sheets on reliability, HP was actually one of the worst brands in the market for reliability. Personally, I wouldnt touch a HP product with a 10 foot pole (unless it was given or extreme deal to buy it)

HP are probably the cheapest quality computers you can buy. They have a lower build quality then Dell.

Why is it that anytime i call customer service i always get american people.

mittwaffen2857d ago

dkgshiz2858d ago

HP is a really terrible company. Their computers have such a cheap feel to them.

fezthabest2858d ago
